Does Fastvue Syslog show log messages as they come in?
Fastvue Syslog shows statistics on the number of messages and the size of logs collected each day, but it does not provide a log viewer or filtering interface. Just open the text logs in your favorite text editor or ‘tail’ application.
How does Fastvue Syslog work?
Fastvue Syslog installs a Windows Service that listens for syslog messages and writes them to text. The service is configured via a web interface that runs on port 47279. The first time you access the web interface, you are presented with the options to set the log and archive paths, listening ports and a username/password for the web interface. You can also edit these options via the cog button in the top right corner of the application. Once configured, logs magically appear in your logging location. See the Getting Started Guide for more information.
